What I really wanted to say is that it most likely was not the cable that
was the culprit: I get 115200 with a bog-standard, non-shielded cable (it
isn't even the cable that comes standard with the MP, but - probably - an
Apple printer cable).

Still, Windows appears to be very easy to program badly in :^)
